You can always do another tandem, however, if you think you’d like to keep jumping, it would be beneficial to get your A-license, which enables you to jump solo (non-tandem/not attached to anyone). Also, once you’re licensed, it’s significantly cheaper to jump. Take a look at the prices differences between tandem and experienced jumps:
tandem: $189+30 gear rental=$219, or purchase online for $165 + 30 gear rental=$195
tandem: $199 (includes gear rental)
Skydive Long Island:
tandem: $225 cash, $234 credit card (both include gear rental)
Depending on the dropzone, there are different programs, either AFP (Accelerated Freefall Progression) or IAF (Instructor Assisted Freefall) — both lead to an A-license & are approximately 10-13 jumps.
Here’s the info for AFP/IAF training for dropzones in the area:
